    Even less exclusives. Xbox already seem to want to drop exclusives. The reason I think this is bad is because I think great exclusive games can drive competition which pushes devs to be more creative a lot of the time. If everyone offers the same guys, people are just gonna go for the most powerful console.

      console hardware either becomes a joint venture with snoy, ms, and amd and they both sell software on the same machine or hardware and physical games are phased out completely in favor of cloud shit and you're just subscribing on and off to who ever has the games you want as time goes on. "most powerful" console doesn't matter when both of them are using the same pool of amd parts, its just a game of leap frog at this point.

      All your exclusive slops released on pc are bland af idk how you snoys get hooked onto it for thousands of hours. They certainly don't know how to make a good, non-formulaic AAA slop.

      There's no proof of this any longer. Exclusives only benefit console platform owners, while game devs and especially players get shit on. Exclusives used to have a purpose the same way consoles themselves did - they were purpose built cheap(er) ways to game making the most of more limited hardware. Sure a $300 NES in the late 80s was expensive, but a "gaming" capable PC would have been a minimum $3K and remained so through the 90s, as well as being quickly outmoded. So you had limited hardware and games being pick up and play. However, after the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube (and definitely the X360/PS3/Wii ) and inflection point was reached. Consoles started getting more PC like with more updates, patches, and other features but most importantly their hardwre started getting closer and closer to off th shelf PC (or mobile phone/tablet) chipsets nd the like. So they would become basically gimped, locked down, proprietary PCs that could only have limited function.

      There's no purpose for consoles as a concept anymore. They should gracefully die and be replaced by branded prefab PCs and similar devices, if these companies want to continue. Peripherals can be made for open PC / mobile OSes by default. They can still sell all their stuff, just without exclusive hardware platforms locked down. The best example is something like the Steam Deck that manages to give a "console like" experience while also being a full power PC that isn't locked down in any way. Valve COULD have made it hard to do anything but run Steam on it, but they didn't - you can run competitors platforms if you really want, pirate, emulate etc..and don't have to worry about Steam banning you from playing your Steam games because it noticed you had a pirated title or an offensive mod or something. Consoles only exist now to shovel money into platform holder pockets and they're holding everyone else back.

        Still has the tentpoles of price and ease of use. Need to look no further than how any modern mid-range GPU costs as much as a whole modern console.

          >Price
          Eh, I expect the prices to continue to go up if the hardware keeps anything close to pace. Xbox and Playstation will be equal if not more expensive than they were in the past generations for the Series X / PS5 disc. When it comes to PC GPUs, keep in mind that the amount of power you get for those purchases despite the price gouging is significantly above a console's. Also people can buy a generation back, used etc (ie NV 3000, AMD 6000 series etc) and sometimes still get a huge amount of price/performance. Of course, its worth noting that a PC does well.. PC stuff atop it all, so it isn't like buying a console is a substitute, really. Even just for gaming though, while consoles may in some cases have a short term price benefit, in the long term they're generally far worse for many reasons. All this aside though, the Steam Deck has models targeting lower price as well, while also being more powerful and capable than alternatives so its possible

          >Ease of use
          Not really a thing anymore I don't think. Since the Steam Big Picture UI, its pretty much the same experience as any console on the simplest ease of use level.

            Too bad most modern games are busted on release day without a day-1 update from a server. Only reason I even buy physical for my consoles is due to slow shitty net, and 50gb+ from a disc beats leaving the console on over night and half a day.

              I agree, that being said its only really sony and Microsoft who do that shit, buying a disc for the PS5 or Sexbox is essentially buying a physical code for the game at this point, which is why i don't buy them anymore.
              I could see another competitor entering the console market that does offer true physical games again if sony and Microsoft do fully retreat from offering physical games in the future.

    I'm not sure what Sony will release as a console after the PS3. There hasn't been any new disc technology that I know of and that seems to be their go-to strategy.
    Sega has been out of the race since 6th gen.
    So far the latest home console is the Wii U from Nintendo and that was 12 years ago.
    If there is another generation of home consoles I guess I expect it to last a long time? I just don't see them making a new console when almost entirely generic x86 hardware seems to satisfy normalgays.

    I'm not expecting anything fun or even slightly interesting.
    Every single Sony console has been fundamentally identical since the PS3, and even that was just a PS2 with a main menu and proper internet access.
    Same with Xbox, except they have an utterly moronic naming scheme that makes it difficult for anyone not paying attention to know which is which, I don't even remember what the current Xbox is called. Also, after the 360 the aesthetics of the Xbox started looking way too similar to the Playstation, which just exacerbates the issue of so many versions of both consoles feeling too similar.
    I do like the Switch, but it has killed any chance of there being dedicated handhelds and consoles from Nintendo in the future. Hopefully they still make interesting consoles, but my guess is that everything from now on will just be Switch 2/3/4, ad nauseum. Might give them the chance to improve the performance at least.
    I expect less than nothing from VR, unless maybe Valve's upcoming one is actually decent.

    I expect MS to go and drop what we know as an Xbox, and instead they sell a mass produced "Xbox" branded Windows PC that devs can use as a min-spec target that is better than most toasters of its year, similar to how PS5/XSX are more powerful than your average Steam user's rig.
